PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say two brothers and one of their ex-wives sexually abused several children over a 15-year period.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says they abused at least five children in Beaverton and Aloha.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports an agency spokesman says each of the alleged victims is related to the suspects. Detectives believe there are more victims.

Benito Juarez-Hernandez is currently in prison for sex abuse and has been accused of 11 new charges of sodomy, sex abuse and unlawful sexual penetration.

His brother, Cupertino Juarez-Hernandez, was arrested in April and accused of 30 counts of sodomy and sex abuse. He’s in the Washington County Jail on $5.5 million.

Diana Rodriguez was arrested Wednesday on 19 charges of sodomy, rape, sex abuse and using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct. She’s jailed in Washington County on nearly $4.8 million bail.
